Addiction Treatment Finds Success Treating Brain Deficiencies through the Belly

Arche Wellness, a licensed addiction treatment program near Pittsburgh PA, has found success treating addiction by focusing on patients' malfunctioning gastrointestinal (GI) tracts. Patient data demonstrates that a consistent intake of toxins causes an addict's intestines to stop the natural absorption process. As a result of its effort to decrease toxic load, the body's GI tract inhibits absorption of many essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids, which leads to severe malnutrition, deficiencies and numerous mental health issues. The center now diagnoses and treats this condition using only vitamins, minerals and amino acids, improving the program's effectiveness and increasing treatment success.

Allison Park, PA (PRWEB) February 19, 2009 -- Today Arche Wellness announced its revolutionary four-step biochemical restoration process for treating addiction. Serving individuals throughout the state of Pennsylvania, the Department of Health licensed rehabilitation center provides a medically intensive, outpatient treatment model using only vitamins, minerals and amino acids for those struggling with addiction to alcohol, heroin, methadone, buprenorphine and prescription painkillers.

The four-step system was conceived upon the realization that almost all addicts suffer from some level of gastrointestinal (GI) problems and severe malnutrition. Patient data consistently demonstrated a correlation between GI distress and non-compliance and relapse in treatment. Through laboratory testing, the program now diagnoses the status of each patient's GI tract and repairs the body's ability to fuel itself as the first stage of treatment. Through the administration of medically supervised nutrient infusions, the center restores each patient's biochemical balance and repairs the malfunctioning GI tract to resolve the root cause of drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Once the GI tract is functioning properly, the body adequately fuels itself resulting in faster improvement of cognitive functioning and mental health and increased effectiveness in counseling and exercise interventions.

"Many programs look at nutritional deficits in the brain, but few if any examine the malfunctions in the mechanism that fuels the brain where the deficiency actually starts - in the gut," said Erin McClelland, MS, Executive Director of the center. "Active addicts put a lot of toxins in their bodies. These toxins cause the intestines to stop absorbing in an effort to slow contamination of the body. It is a common, natural response to a high systemic toxic load. The result is a body that is not receiving the appropriate level of amino acids, vitamins and minerals. So even when patients stop using, they remain tired, anxious and depressed."

The standard intensive, eight week program includes laboratory testing and infusions, as well as supplements, substance abuse counseling, nutritional education, physical training and spiritual enhancement. "This ensures a comprehensive, complete treatment approach and leaves no issues to chance," McClelland said. To help further this goal, the program includes twelve months of continuous aftercare free of charge, which is unprecedented in the rehabilitation field.

The use of integrative medicine and the inclusion of aftercare aren't the only features that distinguish Arche Wellness from other treatment facilities. They also utilize the Toyota Production System's philosophy of continuous improvement to achieve success. In other words, the program is an ongoing cycle of planning, implementing, refining and analyzing. As a result of this process, the center will soon be offering a specialized, less expensive service for heroin and painkiller addicts under the age of 30 because data shows these patients can recover faster with less treatment.
